Default Low Budget Gaming Build For a Friend

Sup HWC.

I am building a little gaming PC for a friend who is new to the PC customization world,
and he has a low budget of 800 bucks MAX including tax.

Do you guys have any opinions on parts?

He doesn't plan on maxing everything, I'm thinking maybe a 5770 or something.

Thanks in advance!



This is what I have in mind so far.

With a bit of price adjusting and NCIX PP pricing, I can probably bring it down to around 800.

Any suggestions?
